Short Science Fiction Collection Vol. 001


Published November 17, 2007


LibriVox recording of Short Science Fiction Collection Vol. 001.

Science fiction (abbreviated SF or sci-fi with varying punctuation and case) is a broad genre of fiction that often involves sociological and technical speculations based on current or future science or technology. This is a reader-selected collection of short stories originally published between 1931 and 1963, that entered the US public domain when their copyright was not renewed. (Summary by Cori Samuel, with Wikipedia input)

Subject: Good collection of stories to drive by
This collection was very enjoyable. It really made the miles go by fast while driving.

The readers are all did a good job. There are technical problems on 'Martian V. F. W.' and 'Pygmalion's Spectacles.' Those two are complete and they play, but they are very crisp. There is no low or mid range making the quality very shrill.

Subject: Good effort but awkward
The readers are amateurs, so these recordings are hard to listen to.

Subject: Fun collection
Although none of the pieces are profound, they are all worth listening to, and all readers do a great job. Thanks!

This is a nice collection, well read by various readers. If you like this one check out Vol. 2 which I think is even better.
